Patients who are thinking about a dental implant from Prestige Dentistry in Palm Harbor and Trinity FL often ask how long they last. An implant is a significant investment, after all. Do they really last a lifetime, like people say? The answer is yes, but an explanation is in order.
A dental implant is not a replacement tooth, but the titanium post that is inserted into the jaw. Titanium is well-suited for implants, and cases of rejection by the body are rare. A big factor in how long the implant lasts comes down to how well you take care of it.
Dental implants are life-changing! With regular checkups and proper care at home, a dental implant can last a lifetime. When you get your implant, we will provide specific instructions for daily care. For most patients, we recommend brushing and flossing twice a day.
